CASPAR was set up to help cardiac researchers share software tools. We want to avoid duplication so we can spend more time doing proper research! The site can also be used to disseminate software arising out of research.

There are just a few rules for use

  • If code is utilised, the Caspar Project page must be cited in any publications (e.g. www.cardiacsoftwarepartnership.org/DataReaders/PrecisionReader).

  • For publications reporting research that uses the software, consider including the developers as authors depending upon the level of contribution.

  • For each project developers should include a file ReadMe.txt setting out terms of use. Please adhere to it!


Institutions Using & Contributing To CASPAR

Professor Steve Niederer

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Professor Niederer is the head of the King’s College London Cardiac Electro-Mechanics Research Group  (CEMRG). The group focus on using physiology and physics encoded in biophysical models to interpret diagnostic and imaging data from the heart. This requires developing mathematical models of cardiac physiology, analysing clinical and experimental measurements using data science techniques and developing virtual cells and whole hearts to test, optimise and predict outcome from drugs, devices, diagnostics and procedures. The team works closely with cardiac imaging, cardiology, cardiovascular research and data science collaborators  to bring novel technologies to bear to study and treat cardiovascular diseases.
